fractionally lower today. google under pressure, the story of the day. let's get to julia boorstin as we await this conference call for google. julia, over to you. >> that's right, maria. as we await google's conference call, i want to point out that facebook shares ended down 4.5% today. this is very much tied to google's disappointing earnings because they share the same problem. fast adoption of mobile devices is slowing their growth. that's because both companies charge less for mobile ads, are making less money from mobile ads as they are from ads on the desk top. mobile ads are still a relatively new ad format for both google and microsoft. both companies have a lot to do in this area. the fact their users are spending so much more time on mobile devices is bad news for the bottom line. we saw with google that the cost per click was down 15% from a year earlier. it does seem like a lot of this can be tied back to that mobile growth. so fast mobile growth, slow revenue growth. maria? >> all right. thank you so much. facebook down 4.5%. great insights there. more on the story of the hour.
